I'm Janet Grogan and I proudly work to support the animal welfare, conservation and education initiatives that are at the core of who we are at Shedd.
My name is Jori Nelson and I’m an intern at Shedd Aquarium. This summer I have been working in the environmental quality lab to learn more about the inner workings of this fantastic Chicago museum.
